there's a new report out now that shows the sad state of the american economy revealing throughout the obama administration, for every dollar we have added to the economy
4:18 am
we've also added $2.30 to our debt. and the forecast for the next couple of years doesn't look any better. let's break down the numbers with peter morici, economist and professor at the university of maryland. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> okay. i wasn't a math major. but that kind of math is going in the wrong direction. >> absolutely. you know the debt's going to start increasing as a share of gdp again. the big problem, america is not growing fast enough. so the government has to borrow to do the things we need. >> well, why isn't the economy growing? >> well, globalization has been kicking heck out of the u.s. economy. we haven't managed it well. we have this huge trade deficit. first we had it with japan. now we have it with china. n workers of demand for the products they make. and those manufacturers they could put out of business, they were big r&d factories. that's why productivity growth is down. >> professor we've got a graphic we're going to put up. since the 1960s on average, growth in the united states has been a little north of 3%.
4:19 am
3.1%. but since the obama administration, it's been at 1.8%. now, is that because of policies of barack obama? or is it just the way the world has changed? >> it's policies of barack obama, and frankly, before him, george w. bush. yes, because they haven't done much about china manipulating the currency and sending lots of exports here. and also, with obama, you know, these regulatory policies that he's imposed, you know, volumes and volumes of regulations, a good example, small banks can't make loans to small businesses. we're actually losing small businesses faster than we're getting new ones started. and you know, they're really dynamos of innovation in ways that are very difficult to measure and see at times. >> you know what professor? as we look at the political landscape right now, there are two candidates who've been talking a lot about trade deficit and how things are rigged. and of course that is bernie sanders and donald trump, right? >> absolutely. this is one of the big appeals
4:20 am
to donald trump. initially started with, you know, frankly white voters that were disenfranchised and angry at the changes in society. but it's broadened out. because a lot of different folks are hurt by this trade deficit. >> right. >> and you know, on sanders' side i'm surprised he didn't do better in south carolina with black voters simply because it's hurting them terribly, an awful lot. they haven't recovered from the financial crisis nearly as well as white americans. and the big trade deficit is depriving them of those manufacturing jobs that help them climb the ladder up, better educate their children and so forth. >> let's see how bernie does tomorrow. it looks like donald trump will do very well. >> yes. >> dr. peter morici joining us today from the university of maryland. sir, thank you very much. >> take care. >> interesting stuff. all right 7:30 -- rather 7:20 here in new york city. chris rock didn't waste any time. he brought up the oscar controversy immediately. >> i'm here at the academy awards.

oscars. this year in the in mem or yum package it's just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies. >> all right. here to react to that and so much more is fox news contributor and executive director of blackfear.net and author of race pimping kevin jackson. everyone was waiting for the open and we saw some of the features throughout the three hour long show. what did you think? >> well, brian, first thanks for having me on the longest black history month we've had in a few years, right? >> yep, got the leap year. >> right. it was tragic. it was fun, though, watching a group of white, racist liberals get put back on them the things that conservatives face every single day. outside of that, though, we've got a real quandary. because at the end of the day you can't say that hollywood is racist. blacks have been getting awards in proportionate numbers for the last couple of decades. as the actual stats show. and so, at the same time that
4:27 am
i'm enjoying watching these very sanctimonious liberals suffer, i also know that it's not good for the country that we go through this. and chris rock, i got to tell you, it was probably the worst performance i've seen in the oscars, i haven't watched it in years but it was definitely one of the ones that i wish i had had a chance to miss. >> really? so you were not impressed with his open? you weren't impressed with that interstitial there with when i went over to compton to talk to people there about what they what movies they saw? >> yeah, you know, look, there are movies that -- many movies for years a lot of people don't watch. he could have gone to areas of missouri, and people would have said the same thing. it has nothing to do with that. these are people who are professionals in their industry that are watching these things. but i think it was more just the this idea of how he was treating hollywood as being so racist, because black people hadn't been nominated. and what was interesting about the oscars this year is they talked about who had won, how many awards they'd won or
4:28 am
hadn't -- had been snubbed like leonardo dicaprio had been nominated this many times. but i think what really got people going was when he did a lot of the things like whoop ki goldberg in the background with the white actress couldn't get her lines out while the black lady was trying to get into the scene. it was so over the top that hollywood was racist. even some of the comments he made about the, you know, the sorority girls and things like that. i think america's really quite sick of it. it was fun to watch the audience's reaction where they had a tepid response to clap. >> kevin, here's the thing, if hollywood didn't come off so condescending to the rest of the world, they know more about the environment, they know more about the planet, they know more about society and the rest of the world just can't catch up to them and then to see them being accused of this and the stats don't lie for the last two years, not one nominee, and you know, i am not a thespian nor do i teach acting classes down the street so i'm not going to be the judge whether they're right
4:29 am
or wrong but they are the ones who are always condescending and condemning of the rest of us and they are perhaps the worst offender. kelp, thanks so much for your insight. appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> all right. meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, you all know this famous movie scene. >> you do not talk about fight club. >> that didn't get nominated either yesterday. but is there an actual fight club in this school? the shocking details straight ahead. then marco rubio and ted cruz stepped up their attacks on donald trump before super tuesday. >> there is no doubt that if donald steamrolls through super tuesday, wins everywhere with big margins, that he may well be unstoppable. i don't think that will happen. >> i believe a first rate con artist is on the verge of taking over the party. >> wow. eric and donald trump jr. are here to respond to those charges. and the personal attacks, next. shoulder to shoulder through our studio and ainsley's first day. say hello to ainsley.

4:34 am
is ainsley earhardt's first day officially as the new host of "fox & friends." >> feels really good. >> if you would like to send her a shout-out just like the king of cable, bill o'reilly, you could tweet us, you could facebook it or you could e-mail us. >> thank you. >> of course we're playing your favorite music for deejay frankie j. and we're also painting you. >> you're painting me? >> your portrait from a wall out there and so is steve's. mine's going to be out there, too. i'm not used to all this attention. it feels very awkward. but i really appreciate it and i'm so grateful for all of your support. >> heather nauert is used to that attention. >> right, of course, of course. good morning, everybody. good morning, ainsley. good morning, guys. hope you're off to a great day. >> there's a school district in california that is now under investigation after a group of students filmed themselves in an alleged fight club ring. several videos posted on social media show the boys duking it out in a locker room and some parents are understandably outraged.
4:35 am
but one student believes it's all just a big misunderstanding. listen. >> someone's trying to like, oh, i'm going to beat this kid up. it was more like hey, me and you. i think i could take you. all right, let's go for it. >> oh, well the students involved could face suspension. a cat lucky to be alimp this morning after surviving an eight mile trip stuck in the bumper of this car. the driver didn't realize her neighbor's cat climbed into her front bumper until passersby flagged her down. they had to use a crowbar to free that cat. it had been hanging out the front end riding just inches from the asphalt. remarkably that cat was not hurt. a historic win for jimmie johnson in atlanta. at the quick trip 500. >> looking for the flag. four cars involved in the back, johnson takes the white flag. >> johnson capturinged the checkered flag with his 76th career sprint cup victory, moves him into a tie for seventh on nascar's all-time wins list with dale earnhardt.
4:36 am
johnson seized control of the race when the crew chief short pitted him with less than 50 laps remaining. vaulting him into that lead. and those are your headlines. headed over to ainsley. >> all right, thank you, heather. with less than 24 hours until super tuesday, donald trump pulls a dominant lead as marco rubio takes a page from his book and goes on the attack. >> he's always calling me little marco. and i'll admit he's taller than me. he's like 6'2". which is why i don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5'2". have you seen his hands? they're like this. and you know what they say about men with small hands. he doesn't sweat. he doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. donald is not going to make america great. he's going to make america orange. >> will these attacks work? here to react donald trump's sons eric and donald trump jr. guys, for coming in. >> great to be here. congratulations. >> congrats.
4:37 am
>> you're here on my first day. >> we'll see. she'll either be very vicious or very nice. we don't know. >> i'll start with being very nice. >> perfect. >> what's your reaction to that? because this is just changing directions. all these insults. talking about your dad being orange, spray tanning, plastic surgery? >> both of these candidates, both kind of opponents at this point, they're drowning, they're not doing very well, so they're kind of bringing down with them. and you know sad to see. we love our father. he's an amazing guy. he would do such an unbelievable job for this country. he's an amazing business man. he's an amazing negotiator. he's self-funding himself. all these guys you know, including rubio, is being funded by super pacs, and just very, very sad to see that kind of dialogue. >> it's almost like watching a reality show. what's your reaction to this? >> i think it's gotten ridiculous. it's a desperate move. it's one thing if you have an aggressive personality and you've been known to have that for your entire life. it's another thing, oh, we pretend to do this and my puppet masters will tell me what to say. i don't think it comes across as
4:38 am
genuine. it's a desperate move. >> a lot of people are saying that, it looks really desperate. >> you can't be mr. nice guy, mr. nice guy and all of a sudden i'm mr. attack guy because someone calls me weak and says you're not a tough guy. it doesn't play well in my opinion. i am my fear's son so i'm going to support him. it is sad to see this is where politics have gone. where you don't have a real record to talk about. rick santorum, i'm for rubio. he's great. what are his accomplishments? oh, i don't know. he hasn't done anything. this is a guy who's running for president. he's a half-term senator. we talk about barack obama that way. he had no experience and never did anything. cruz and rubio the same thing. it's sort of amazing. and i'm a conference saying this. >> your dad for the fact that he's not the establishment politician, they like the fact that he doesn't have any political experience. >> right. >> now when i drive around new york city i see your dad's name on so many different buildings. he's been very successful. he says he's not going to release his tax returns, at least not right now. now you've got some of these politicians like ted cruz who is saying maybe he's not releasing them because he's connected to the mob. what's your reaction? >> it's ridiculous. i mean, first of all, anybody
4:39 am
who knows anything about business realizes tax returns shows you nothing about somebody's net worth and what they've accomplished. i think that is the greatest testament to our father. you drive around new york and see some of the buiiggest buildings in new york. not just here but in nevada, chicago, all over california. what he's done over the course of his life is absolutely exceptional and he'll do that for the country. and listen, he's self-funding his campaign. i mentioned that above. he doesn't need to be running for commander in chief. this is his way of giving back to the country. this country has given him everything, don and i and ivanka and a great family. it's given him an amazing business. he's sick of seeing what's happening to our nation. >> your dad's doing really well. if you look at the map he is really on schedule to win a lot of these states tomorrow. he's probably if the polls are correct, going to go up against hillary clinton. look at the map here. i mean your dad's taking all of these red states right now. if he goes up against hillary this is what she was saying in south carolina over the weekend. i want to get your reaction. >> despite what you hear, we don't need to make america great
4:40 am
again, america has never stopped being great. we do need to make america whole again. instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers. >> she says america is already great. >> well, listen, america is a great country. but it's going down the wrong path. we want to fix it. we want to make it better than ever before. i think the people that my father's reaching out to, they're real, hard-working american people. he's finally giving them a voice again. that's why this is a movement. this isn't a political thing. this is a movement. i mean people are supporting him because they haven't had a voice in such a long time. meaning hard-working americans. the people that built this country. he's giving them that voice. and that's what's so incredible about it. >> you're seeing that at the turnout in polls. in south carolina, they had an awful turnout hardly anybody showed out to the polls. if you look at all the republican states thus far, they've doubled, they've tripled their numbers. the excitement behind the gop right now is incredible. and that's largely due to him and his personality and what he's saying.
4:41 am
>> he's bringing new people into the race. that's the biggest thing. people who haven't voted in 30 years. people who have been totally disenfranchised. the people who historically voted democrats, big union guys. you think they're voting for hillary clinton or donald trump who actually built something. it's going to be historic turnout for the gop. >> now there are a lot of celebrities that don't agree with your dad, that don't think he's going to make america great. listen to this. >> i don't think that's america. i don't want it to be america. maybe it's time for me to move. >> if donald trump is the nominee, i'm open to support anyone while i'm also reserving my -- my ticket to get out of here if he wins. >> if any republican gets nominated i'm going to move to canada with my entire family. >> would you guys miss them if they leave? >> not at all. i'll buy them their airfare. i'll buy their airfare, it's already -- i'm more than happy to ship it. yes, please, throws endorsements
4:42 am
for trump. that's the thing. you know, when you have the establishment people in the debates and they stack the debates with 1,000 people that are all establishment and they're booing. those aren't votes for us because the people in the audience watching at home, he's saying what i'm thinking. i love that. that's as good an endorsement as i could possibly get. we got a couple big ones coming out. we got a couple big ones yesterday. we had the guys from benghazi which was perfect given what bill and hillary clinton said to the marine when questioned about benghazi. those guys came up because they know trump's not leaving them in that situation. that will never happen under our watch. >> and senator sessions who was amazing yesterday. >> biggest guy on immigration probably in the country coming out for us. so we're really creating movement. and even those guys who really know these things are coming out for us. it's great. >> donald, eric, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> well erin andrews set to take the stand today in her $75 million stalker lawsuit. what will she say today? we are live with those details coming up next. plus, these horses, they have served our country. they've served the army, the air
4:43 am

all right 14 minutes before the top of the hour. that woman right there erin andrews is expected to take the stand later today in her civil trial against a nashville marriott hotel, just days after the sportscaster left the courthouse in tears following testimony in her stalking case. >> yep, abby huntsman is here with the latest. >> you guys, the horrible story. a nightmare no one would want to relive. she'll be taking the stand just hours from now. erin andrews is expected to share her emotional and painful story on what it feels like to have your privacy violated. andrews is suing the owners of the national marriott hotel at vanderbilt university for $75 million. back in 2008 michael david barrett called the nashville marriott hotel, asked if andrews was staying there. barrett then booked a room next to hers, rigged the peep hole, secretly videotaped her in the nude and posted the video
4:48 am
online. an attorney says the hotel is mostly to blame for this and she joined us earlier on "fox & friends." here's what she had to say. >> at the end of the day we have to look at what the hotel did. the hotel owes a legal duty to its guests for reasonable protection from any criminal acts of a third party. and that means to maintain the information, the confidentiality, of its guest information and they didn't do that. >> barrett served 2 1/2 years in prison for his crime against andrews. but her father says that does not end the nightmare that she has been living with. and experts say more than 17 million people have watched the illegal nude videos of andrews on websites around the world. and her dad says she has not been the same ever since. guys, it's a horrible story. and obviously it's impacted erin andrews and her entire family. so it's going to be a rough day for her. >> indeed. abby, thank you. meanwhile, two military horses that honored our heroes are looking for a new home on this monday morning. find out how you could actually

4:54 am
platoon horses who have served in arlington national cemetery. they're being retired due to medical reasons. kennedy we have here to my right is a 15-year-old standard bred. he's got a lot of energy. he's a great horse. completely able to be ridden. more of the experienced riders. then we have quincy, to my left, who is very personable. and like i said, also served at arlington national cemetery. very honorable service and we're looking for the best possible home for these horses. >> and what are you looking for in a home? somebody obviously with horse experience able to house them. do you need any financial wherewithal to prove that you can afford it? >> yes, sir. we have a very thorough vetting process for the adoption package. it is currently a seven-page application that the adopters would fill out and then submit to the caisson platoon. each horse is adopted out individually. we're looking for a different -- we're looking for a different characteristics in each adopter. so for kennedy, the adopter would have plenty of riding
4:55 am
experience. he is a little bit temperamental so someone with riding experience, and/or horse training experience would be ideal. quincy on the other hand has disease which basically he's lame in his front teeth so anybody who has worked with the disease or works closely with aer iffier with experience would really be the ideal adopter for quincy. >> lieutenant, have they changed out of their work? is that why they're being adopted? >> no. so these horses are not -- haven't fulfilled their age requirement for caisson platoon. like i said, quincy is only 11 years old. he has a long life ahead of him. kennedy on the other hand is 15. so both pretty young horses who are still able to be trained. so, able to be ridden and worked with. >> and of course, he got the majesty of knowing what they've done and what they've already done for the country so you're going to have a special horse on your hands along with a great cause. thanks so much. >> that's right. >> thank you. where do we find out information

5:04 am
didn't waste any time calling out the biggest elephant in the room, ripping into what he calls racist hollywood. during his opening monologue. here's a bit. >> man, i counted at least 15 black people on that montage. i'm here at the academy awards. otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. hollywood is sorory racist. it's like, we like you, rhonda. but you're not a kappa. >> but perhaps a moment everyone is talking about the most, leonardo dicaprio's long overdue win for best actor. it was the most tweeted moment in oscar's history. >> and the oscar goes to -- leonardo dicaprio. >> making "the revenant" was about man's relationship to the natural world. climate change is real. it is happening right now. let us not take this planet for granted. i do not take tonight for granted.

>> he's really led it. we start with ted cruz who says that trump's in bed with the mob. >> there have been multiple media reports about donald's business dealings with the mob. with the mafia. >> he's always calling me little marco. and i'll admit he's talling than me like 6'2". which is why i don't understand his hands are the size of someone who is 5'2". have you seen his hands? they're like this. and you know what they say about men with small hands. he doesn't sweat. he doesn't sweat because his pores are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. donald is not going to make america great. he's going to make america orange. >> men with small hands. you know what that means? >> small gloves? >> exactly. right. by the way, among the republicans that are not going to support donald trump, senator ben sasse said i'm not going to do it. >> trump has gotten big endorsements. chris christie over the weekend. jan brewer over the weekend.
5:09 am
and now the benghazi heroes. three guys who that movie is based on, they have come out squarely in donald trump's camp. >> we had a chance to sit down with eric and donald trump jr. the sons of donald trump the candidate. here's what they had to say about these insults. >> i think it's a desperate move. it's one thing if you have an aggressive personality and you've been known to have that for your entire life like my father. oh, we pretend to do this and my puppet masters will tell me what to say so i can win some points. i don't think it comes across as genuine. >> both these candidates, both opponents they're drowning, they're not doing very well, so they're kind of bringing down with them. and sad to see. we love our father. he's an amazing guy. he would do such an unbelievable job for this country. >> a lot of people say that it is funny. i know a lot of people say they want to hear more about policy but i talked to some people who say it's really funny they're talking about spray tans and water and full length mirrors. but don't you remember back in 2012, when john mccain was running they were going after his wife, and saying that
5:10 am
illegitimate children. >> in south carolina. >> addicted to prescription drugs. it does get a lot nastier. what we're seeing right now, i think a lot of this is just funny. you don't expect to see that in the presidential race. >> it's kind of beneath what the actual office needs, i think it's kind of embarrassing. i thought he started with the last debate and hopefully will be eliminated. >> getting good ratings. a lot of people are watching this -- >> they are. >> ainsley you didn't just start today. you just started with us today. where you've been before, i think, is very significant. >> well, i understand you've put together something that tells the story. >> we have. >> i haven't seen this yet. >> ainsley from "a" to "z." >> ainsley has had a long history here at fox news channel. she has paid her dues. as you're about to see. >> i'm ainsley earhardt on "fox & friends." starts right now. we're all learning about each other, too. we're all new to the show. here's what's happening in the

i'm billy, and i quit smoking with chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away
5:16 am
as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

a fox news alert. a pentagon staff sergeant accused of killing a virginia police officer on her very first day is just minutes away from facing a judge. >> prosecutors say ronald hamilton could face the death penalty. kristin fisher is live in washington with more. hey, kristin. >> hey, good morning. this active duty army staff sergeant was assigned to the pentagon could now be facing the death penalty. ronald hamilton is charged with first degree murder of his wife. the officer was on her very first shift. she was sworn in on friday and even welcomed to the department in this post on twitter with a warning, be safe. but the very next day officer guindon and two other officers were responding to a call about a domestic disturbance when they approached the front door, the suspect opened fire.
5:19 am
all three of those officers were hit. two are expected to make a full recovery but they have a long road ahead. but officer guindon died at the hospital. >> she was not only driven and passionate but exceedingly intelligent. she struck us that way as we interviewed her prior to hiring her and rehiring her and it's always the type of officer we're seeking is that type of passion. >> the police chief says his department is in deep mourning. they came together at a vigil last night. but this isn't the first tragedy for officer gunlden's family. her father, who was in the national guard, he committed suicide in 2004, just one day after returning home from iraq. now this. the suspect is scheduled to make his first court appearance in just about 15 minutes. brian, steve and ainsley. and ainsley, such a sad story, but i have to congratulate you. you're the perfect fit. and i can't wait to meet you in person finally. >> i know we've worked together for over a year now because you were always on "fox & friends"

it's hollywood's biggest night of the year. and last night's oscars did not disappoint. with big ones, some upsets and chris rock's controversial monologue, there was no shortage of drama. >> deadline.com reporter dominic patton joins us right now from los angeles with a recap. all right, dominic, start at the beginning. chris rock, we knew it was coming, he started with a slam against hollywood, didn't he? >> well, yes, he did. but you know what? the thing is, people thought he was going to show up with a
5:25 am
scalpel. he kind of just showed up with a cheese cutting knife. i mean this was like an old host. let's be honest, chris rock last hosted the oscars in 2005, which is the best they've done in ten years. so they bring him back for the ratings, and to address the oscars so white problem of there being no people of color in the top acting nominees. and what does he do? i've got problems, you've got problems, we've all got problems. hopefully we can fix it. it kind of didn't address anything. >> i thought he was good in him saying, i thought he qualified it by saying, at first, you know, this isn't the first time there's been a problem. why this year? why when i host. >> exactly. exactly. and i think that's the problem. is there's a larger problem that hollywood has to address here. they love to tell people around the world, and around the country, how they should be living their lives. but you know, as they say, people in glass houses, my friends. >> sure. >> well, somebody who actually lives on the other side of the country, joe biden, our vice president, was in attendance last night and he said this.
5:26 am
watch this. >> thanks. no, no, no, no. thank you. i'm the least qualified man here tonight. thank you. >> very well received. >> what was that? i mean, look, the vice president has now become a kind of elder statesman because he's not running for president. so the biden gaffes have become lovable? i don't even know what that meant. >> why was he even there. >> pardon me? >> why was he there? >> well, look, he was there -- well, he was there, "a," let me tell you, to snarl up l.a. traffic something terrible with a biden-jam. but he was mainly here also to talk about what i think is a very, very worthy cause which is the administration's efforts to stop campus sexual assault with its it's on us campaign and introducing lady gaga, which i did not know was a big member of the administration, for her song from a documentary about this very subject. but come on. this was touting out a big star,
5:27 am
one of the biggest stars they could get and they knew and the administration, who has many donors in that crowd knew that the audience of 80-plus million they were going to be having was going to be a good platform for them. they were just trying to find some way to get someone on there. before we go further, ainsley so great to see you on the show. >> oh, thanks. >> it's fantastic. i've been following on twitter all the videos from bill o'reilly and everyone welcoming you. people have got to check out your "fox & friends" twitter feed. it's a whole other world of welcoming on there. >> thank you. i appreciate that. everyone's been wonderful. i just looked at the clock. we only have 30 minutes of the show? no! could we make it longer? >> we're going to do it again tomorrow. >> that was the opposite feeling i had last night with the oscars. there's going to be 30 more minutes of this thing? it went on and on and on. the biggest problem from last night's oscars, yes there was a surprise with "spotlight" where we thought "the revenant" was.
5:28 am
yes, leonardo dicaprio in my opinion personally contributed to climate change with that hot air speech of his about the environment. but the real thing was, the surprise was "spotlight" winning. which cleaned up the day before at the independent spirit awards. gut again, this kind of challenge to pope francis of protect the children and restore the faith. i feel like time and time again the oscars show us if you don't give hollywood a script they kind of just sound like college kids on a rant. >> you know what, dominic, there was one other moment and we just saw a little image of adam mckay, he was the screen writer and director of "the big short" and we've got a sound bite to play. it sure sounds like he's taking a shot at a democrat and not just any democrat, hillary. listen to this. >> first of all, if you don't want big money to control government, don't vote for candidates that take money from big banks, oil, or weirdo billionaires. stop. >> and of course hillary has taken $20 million from big banks. was that a shot at hillary?
5:29 am
according to the hollywood reporter this morning it sure looked like one. >> yeah, look, we said it on our live reporting there. in fact what i pointed out is it was a shot at hillary but let's be clear. one of the biggest problems of last night you take shots at people but you don't man up and name names. this was obviously a shot at hillary. one of adam mckay's longtime collaborators and partners is will ferrell. a big hillary supporter. so he's not going to want to cause any problems there. again, the same old hollywood problems. if you want to address something, i say address it. that's what -- that's what the media and the platform is for. >> dominic -- >> don't walk away and say oh, kind of tomorrow. >> dominic, you know what? that might have been a disappointing show. but you brought your "a" game this morning. thanks so much >> thank you, dominic. >> hey, and ainsley, yay! >> thank you. >> dominic, thank you. >> meanwhile we are just one day away from super tuesday. so which states are still up for grabs? if any. we're live on the trail coming up next.
5:30 am
>> and msnbc's see you later. why melissa harris-perry just got the boot. but first, here's crowd control with yet another song for ainsley's first day. >> that's right. >> some kenny k4esly out there. >> i love him. >> american kid just for you, ainsley. >> all right. ♪ ♪ put me on the cover of rolling stone growing up and living out ♪ we ship everything you can imagine. and everything we ship has something in common. whether it's expedited overnight... ...or shipped around the globe, ...it's handled by od employees who know that delivering freight... ...means delivering promises.

5:36 am
senator jeff sessions. this is trump's first public endorsement from a sitting u.s. senator. as the gop front-runner trump is also facing attacks from democrats. hillary clinton who enjoys a comfortable lead in most super tuesday states has countered some of trump's common campaign themes, including his pledge to build a wall along the u.s./mexican border. bernie sanders is also going after trump despite his immediate concerns over how well he can do in his own party on super tuesday. especially in the deep south, where a large numbers of african-american voters polled strongly in favor of hillary clinton. here in georgia, early voting has set a new record, more than 400,000 early ballots cast. that is surfacing the previous record set in 2008 by about 50%. back to you guys. >> all right jonathan, not far from the state house there in atlanta. thank you very much. >> so right now there's a front-runner. and his name is donald trump. if he wins it will impact the country, but it will also impact some celebrities. >> there are a lot of
5:37 am
celebrities that aren't in favor of donald trump winning, even getting the nomination. and they're saying they will leave the country if he wins. take a listen. >> i don't think that's america. i don't want it to be america. maybe it's time for me to move. >> if donald trump is the nominee, i'm open to support anyone while i'm also reserving my -- my ticket to get out of here if he wins. >> if any republican gets nominated i'm going to move to canada with my entire family. >> i guess she's leaving. because there will be a republican that does get a nomination. >> yes. >> she really understands the system. >> so given the fact that all these celebrities are saying if donald trump winds up getting elected they're going to leave, well there is a nova scotia town, it's actually an island, cape breton, it is lovely. look at this. they have offered to take the celebrities, hey celebrities who don't like donald trump, come here to this island in canada. this is not a joke, they say.
